A lawyer who represented three women during the criminal proceedings against Jeffrey Epstein over a decade ago thinks the convicted pedophile may not live to see his trial if he is released from prison or is allowed to mingle with other inmates.Spencer Kuvin said in an interview with The Sun that he does not think Epstein attempted suicide last week, and that his injuries could be the result of an attempted hit by one of his powerful friends.
‘I do question whether it was a true suicide attempt. I mean how do you choke yourself? It doesn’t make any sense,’ said Kuvin.
‘There are reports someone came after him but that could just be because he’s a pedophile. Those types of individuals don’t last long in prison.’
It is unclear how Kuvin learned that Epstein tried to choke himself as the Federal Bureau of Prisons has refused to release any details on the incident and reports have only noted the presence of neck wounds.
Kuvin similarly did not offer up an explanation as to how he believes a person was able to gain entry into Epstein’s cell after lockdown in the high security SHU wing of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
He did state however that he believes one of Epstein’s powerful friends would likely be behind any attempt on the pedophile’s life.
‘If he goes on trial, everyone he’s been in contact with will ultimately be fair game,’ said Kuvin.
‘There’s no doubt in my mind that no jail will protect you when there’s powerful people that want to reach you – wherever you are.’
